Pressure Canner Gauge Testing

Food Preservers should have their pressure canner gauges tested annually for proper calibration. Pressure gauge testing is available at the Clallam County Extension Office by appointment. Please call 360-417-2279 to set up a time to have your gauge tested. When you bring your gauge into our office for testing, remember to bring both the gauge and the lid, along with any rubber seals attached to the lid unit.
